Although the resort seems run down, the restaurant is really enjoyable and authentic. Tempura was terrific. The egg custard soup, chaw an mushi is well worth ordering. Excellent staff. Lots of people dining and staying there. The resort had excellent pools and enormous grounds.

We have been coming there for years & have always loved it. But it is getting very run down & less of the activities are open every time we are there. The rooms are ok but don't expect 5star. & most of the staff are very rude. It's about time they spend some money on it of knock it down.

We're a family of 4 and stayed here for 3 nights ($149 per night including breakfast) in late June. From when I phoned to book the accommodation (spoke with Maggie - she is brilliant) to checking out of the resort, we didn't come across 1 staff member who wasn't helpful. Everyone that works there seems to truly enjoy their jobs.... More

We come here from time to time for fun and for work. This is a great place for families and conferences. Love the pool - all year around if you are from a colder latitude or most of the year for the rest of us. The archery, mini golf, grass bowls, badminton, water slide, and other activities are great.

In a beautiful tropical location. It's a little tired in places but great pool and right on the beach! Breakfast is great! Rooms are clean and a good size! Lots of fun activities especially Graham at Archery! Great waterslide and poolside bar! Great fun! Lawn bowls is a blast!

Capricorn Resort was built about 35 years ago and it seems that they have never renovated the rooms. But while the rooms are small, they are still quite good, not 5 star , but still comfortable and well appointed considering the quite reasonable rates. While the resort boasts 3 restaurants, only 2 were open as well as a coffee shop.... More

The family room was spacious and great for couple and two children. Clean, roomy and nice view of the pool. The rest of the grounds don't look well cared for, there were very few guests, workers, and services. and the pool was exceptionally cold water with no one in the pool area. The first night the outdoor restaurant was closed,... More

The rooms are just ok - in desperate need of updating and a freshen up, BUT you do not stay here for the rooms. The grounds, the pool, the activities, the beach, Yeppoon, Great Keppel Island, are the reasons you stay here. It is such a family friendly place with heaps to do. The all you can eat breakfast buffet... More

My husband and I recently stayed here as we were attending a ball at the resort. Our room was small but well appointed. The bathroom was quite large with a nice big bathtub. The bed was very comfortable, and whilst some of the furnishings seems a bit outdated, we were quite content as we got a good deal which included... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Close your eyes and imagine the sounds of the waves lapping the shore, of the wind rustling the leaves, the sun on your face, not a cloud in the sky and the smell of the ocean breeze. Now open them, look and feel. Set on 20km of secluded coral reef coastline, the resort offers something for everyone. The Resort's facilities include two international golf courses, stylish dining concepts,free activities, horse riding, wetland tours, rainforest canoe adventure tours and much much more. Go for a walk amongst the surrounding unspoilt bush and wetlands, home to some of Australia's most beautiful and rare wildlife, or stroll along our very own 20km of pristine beach frontage which looks out towards the cool clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef and tropical islands of the neighbouring Keppel Island Group. You could also choose to laze around in the sunshine with a refreshing cocktail. We have one of the largest freshwater pools in the South Pacific. Do as much or do as little, that is entirely up to you. Our aim is to provide a friendly and professional standard of service for all our guests, by providing unique facilities which blend harmoniously with the natural wonders of the unique environment which surrounds the resort. ... more   less
